Dressing for Alaska


Dressy dinner wear!

I have to admit, I fell in love with Alaska during my first cruise.  My friend Jeff Wagg, cruise organizer genius, put together a fantastic cruise for the JREF.  Alaska is perfect for cruising.  Much of the state is only accessible by boat or plane, and the coastline has to be some of the most beautiful scenery in the world.  I spent hours just looking at the scenery as we cruised by.

Still, I learned a cruise meant you needed CLOTHES.  When I travel to Europe, I go with one small carry on.  I wear all black and throw in some scarves.  A cruise, you need nice clothes for dinner and an array for everything in between!


Comfortable walking shoes, and rain gear.


Polar fleece for warmth, and a few sweaters. This was the last cruise for the year and it was bit chilly!

I have cruised to Mexico and the Caribbean, but Alaska still has first place in my heart.

Still, a cruise requires the BIG SUITCASE, not the carry on.

  1. This was the trip where I got to know you!

  2. Alaska is pretty special. Just like Kitty.

  3. I wish I had been along! I LOVE Alaska and my cruise along the coast — we did the long route, from Seward down to Vancouver, BC via Glacier Bay and the jaw-dropping College Fjord — is one of my most cherished memories. The other thing about packing for a cruise, though: nothing snug! At least, our cruise had fabulous food every where you turned!
